"History of Amiga/Ocean/US PDF books" - (£1)

Hi all,

Thought I'd post this as it may be of interest to some:

https://fusionretrobooks.com/collections/pdf

They have some Amiga/other related books for a £1.

Yes, but you can now see online the process of goods becoming "retro". They are growing in price

Yes, they were free originally from what I have read.

Still £1 is pretty good going.

pfft, missed it, although it's only a pound now, it seems too much to pay for something I will probably only read two pages of.

Thanx, I’m downloading the available free books now. I wish I would have seen your post sooner.

How does this work? Do you have to still 'check out' like a purchase even though there are several free books?

Yes, you still have to check out even if you select free books.
